The Loughborough Bellfoundry Trust is working to secure a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund to preserve the historic buildings of the bell foundry. However they need to raise £1.1m from other sources to secure the Lottery grant.
They say that although the business is in good fettle, the historic site of the Loughborough Bell Foundry is in a perilous condition and may fall into disrepair without investment..
We attach a leaflet with further information. Individual ringers who wish to make a donation will find the necessary details in the leaflet. Whilst this is undoubtedly a worthy cause, the Guild is not making any recommendation but leaving the decision on donations to the discretion of individual ringers.
